If you tell me the mg/ml of the liquid your dog had and the mg of the tablets you have, I can tell you how to mix your own. I'll also need to know how many total ml or ounces was in the bottle of liquid to start with.
Crush one 250mg and one 500mg tab into a fine powder. Mix 1 teaspoon of vanilla yogurt and 2 teaspoons of water together. Combine everything together and mix well. That will yield you a 15ml solution of 50mg/ml (exactly the same as you got from the vet). Administer as prescribed on the original bottle of vet medicine.ok lets see.. the vet gave me 50 mg/ml. there's no ounces just says "15 ml when mixed"
I have both 250 mg and 500 mg tablets
yea but don't dump 750mg worth of ground up amoxicillin in wet food all at once.This is probably as good of advice as trying to buy the liquid since they are just a suspension liquid anyway, with the amoxi particles floating in something palatable. Heck, grind it fine and mix it with wet food.
Be careful with tuna. My GF lost an expensive cat that way. I'm not sure of all the details, but the vet said something in the tuna was bad for the cat's kidneys... (of course she was feeding the cat an entire can at a time, just like it was expensive cat food).Maybe you could mix little amounts of the daily dosage into "treats" that add up to a full dosage by the end of the day.
My cat was a sucker for this when the main carrying mechanism was tuna from a can mixed equal parts with a fish based wet food mixed with his medicine. I was pretty old school though, and ground his pills in an old marble mortar and pestle to ensure smoothness.
He's 15, he deserves a little spoiling :thumb:
